Apprentice Stonemason

Are you looking for a hands-on career with long-term prospects? Lincoln Cathedral has a rare and exciting opportunity for an ambitious and motivated individual to join the Works Department as an Apprentice Stonemason.

This is a three-year post, including training leading to NVQ Level 3 in Stonemasonry. Working within a supportive team you will be mentored by qualified Cathedral masons and other heritage craft professionals. You will work within the workshop and out on site, and you will undertake block release training at college. Please note that, as the local colleges do not offer a stonemasonry course, this post will require you to live away from home for the periods of block release training. (We will pay all essential travel, accommodation and subsistence costs as well as all college fees.)

As a Cathedral apprentice you will learn the masonry conservation skills to care for one of the finest buildings in the world, and you will lay the foundation for a meaningful career in the built heritage sector. A strong passion for working within the heritage sector is an absolute must, as is some proven expertise in practical skills.

We would love to hear from you if you have:

  • Minimum 5 GCSEs Grade A* – C (or equivalent) including English and Maths
  • Proven ability as a practical learner (you will be required to bring evidence of something you have made, and to speak about it for five minutes, if selected for interview)
  • Evidence of a proactive approach to learning and developing new skills (eg: in your out of school/work activities)
  • An enthusiasm, commitment and passion to move into a career within the built heritage sector

You must be over the age of 16 and eligible to work and study in the UK, and successfully complete an occupational health assessment. Please note that it is an essential requirement of this job that you work outside, and at height on scaffolded sites, as well as in the workshop, therefore you must be confident of your ability to do this.
